The best thing about Winter sun is the crisp, coast walks.
When the sun is out, no matter how cold and bitter it may be, going for a stroll along the coast is always good for the soul. It is of course necessary when you have a dog, but it’s also a fun pass time with friends too.
But the best way to enjoy a winter walk is to have some delicious hot food or drink to look forward to at the mid-point or the end, and I’ve started to make a list of my favourite spots for the best warming foods for your walks!
1. Pandora Inn, Restronguet
When I was three years old I remember rowing our small boat over from our house in Feock to the famous Pandora Inn on Restronguet Creek; between Truro and Cornwall this 13th century, thatched-roof gastro-pub is a hub for coast path walkers and sailors alike, with its own pontoon for clientele to moor up on!
2. Driftwood Spars, St. Agnes
I feel like Driftwood is actually pretty underrated! In Trevaunance Cove, nestled between two of my favourite sections of the South West Coast Path, this brewery-come-pub serves delicious and generously portioned food including fresh crab and awesome burgers, as well as being the perfect spot for events and wedding ceremonies too.
3. Lewinnick Lodge, Newquay
Positioned on a rather spectacular section of the coast path, Lewinnick Lodge gazes out over the Atlantic and offers a delicious seafood menu with a view. Known for being a hotspot for dolphin sightings throughout the year, it’s easily accessible from the coast path between Newquay and Crantock, and definitely worth a stop.

4. Godolphin Arms, Marazion
If you’re walking around Mount’s Bay or near Rinsey Head, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Godolphin Arms; a family-run inn on the edge of Marazion beach, looking out to the fantastic St Michael’s Mount – a true Cornish icon! Offering delicious food in a modern setting, this is definitely one to add to the bucket list.
5. Charlie’s Boathouse, Charlestown
Just outside St. Austell, Charlestown is a beautifully quaint Georgian port with stunning beaches and a coast path I’d highly recommend taking a walk along. Luckily there are plenty of awesome places to eat in Charlestown too, but I particularly loved Charlie’s Boathouse for its buzzing atmosphere and amazing seafood linguine!
